I am buying a clamp meter for christmas and would like to order it tomorrow sometime so it gets here by Christmas. I am willing to spend up to $350 on one and am mainly looking at Fluke products.

This is my first clamp meter and I want to buy good quality the first time around...

I don't know much at all about these types of tools, but from what my research has conducted is that this would be a pretty good model to go with.

I also see in videos that people use a digital multi meter to obtain the AC voltage also. Do I need a special multimeter for this? Or would any decent multimeter do the trick?

Thanks fellas...

If you think you're against guns, ask yourself the following question.

Would the teachers who sacrificed their lives in a futile attempt to protect their students in Sandy Hook Elementary have wanted to have a firearm in their possession?

How do the fluke 335, and 336 compare to the 337? I too am looking for a nice accurate clamp that has true rms function. Let me know what you guys think!

Just like EBW said: You don't wanna buy the name only. Try out PCE Instruments. Comparable (German) quality but cheaper than Fluke!
